As I was getting darling daughter out of the car at the gym I noticed an awesome rainbow. Absolutely wonderful! I even pulled out my phone to take a picture.
I ended up running 7.01 miles with an average pace of 8'33". I did slight incline intervals. And you know what? It was a good decision. Although, my miles this week pretty much match last week's and if I do that 14 miles next week, hmmmm...., there won't be a big recovery week. But I will continue to listen to my body. Oh yeah, and darling daughter blamed the rainbow for me forgetting my water bottle.
Today I ran a mere 1.25 miles. I was going to run more while watching Flipper with darling daughter but in that short time, she interrupted my run twice for legitimate reasons so I threw in the proverbial towel and decided a rest day wouldn't kill me and could only heal me from my lingering fatigue. And so far, I am feeling pretty with it and energized today.
So it looks this weekend I am doing a good job of balancing my running desires with my personal health needs and my family essential and fun needs. Just be glad you can't see the chaos developing behind me as darling daughter decorates a fort/house for her sweet toy dog.....you know, the one that ate my training report!
